Not to be too much of a nit-picker, but if you look at the decal on your frame (assuming the decals are still there) you'll find it's spelled Ochsner. See: http://www.ochsnerusa.com/index2.html

It's my understanding that Ochsner imported his house brand frames from Switzerland. Are you sure the threading isn't Swiss?

BTW, back in 1992 I was contemplating buying a Vitus 992. Some 'net research found that at that time Ochsner International was the North American Vitus importer. I wanted to know something about parts and service availability, so I called Ochsner. I talked to a guy with a thick German accent who I later determined was Othon Ochsner himself. Based partly upon that discussion I bought the 992, which is still my primary bike. Hope the headset never wears out. ;-)
